The Walnut

Meet Walnut, she is an absolutely gorgeous rare heavy cotton corduroy skirted pinafore dress by Pierre Elegante London in a rich brown shade. Walnut is extremely unique, and she is PERFECT for building those ultimate autumn looks! She has a fitted deep waistband with button front closure and a full length skirt. She has two straps which crossover at the back, which also can be adjusted in length by several inches. What I love about Walnut is the outfit possibilities, she could be worn in SO many ways and is an absolute iconic piece of 70s fashion.

This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 best.

Bust - FREE

Waist - 28" at the high waist and 26" at the natural waist.

Length -  58" - but this can be adjusted slightly with the straps if needs be.

 For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6. 

The Walnut has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a cool setting. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear.

This beauty has minimal signs of vintage wear, but please bear in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all of our garments will carry your usual signs of vintage wear. Anything that we think is outside of what would class as usual vintage wear, we will state.

Here at Pansy we know vintage sizes are very different from modern sizes, and we pride ourselves on offering accurate measurements with approximate modern UK sizing to ensure a your Pansy purchases will be a good fit.
Although we do offer approx modern sizing it is also very helpful if you know your own measurements. If you are unsure of these, an easy way of estimating them is measuring one of your own garments, that fits well, laid flat. Measure in inches, across from pit to pit, flat across the waist and double both of these measurements.  Our length measurements are mostly taken from the highest point of the shoulder to the hem.
